Can I apply for a permit with Immigration to travel outside of the USA on Vacation while being under TPS?
Question by skidd649: Can I apply for a permit with Immigration to travel outside of the USA on Vacation while being under TPS?
I have been under TPS (Temporary protective status) for over 5 years now and I would like to travel outside of the USA on vacation, somewhere like Puerto Rico or the Bahamas but my INS permit does not allow me to leave. Is there a form that I can file with Immigration to request a permit to leave for vacation purposes? Someone please help me!

You can certainly ask. It’s called advance parole and the form is an I-131. Just be sure to apply for the form and make sure you have it approved before you leave the US, or you will have successfully deported yourself and lost your TPS status. By the way, Puerto Rico is part of the US, so you would be wasting your time and money to apply to go there, and you wouldn’t get a refund either. Check out this address:
